Heather Dixon of Army of Knitters
share the story behind her Tabasco Mitts..."The single skein of
Mandarin colored yarn was crying out to be made into a pair of fingerless mitts.
They wanted to be a simple design, close-fitting with a double cable running
down the center. They needed to be long, seamless and with enough finger
coverage to keep those Winter chills at bay. They told me they were happy but
needed some shorter, part-fingered friends and so the second version was
completed. The finished mitts are snuggly-warm and I love them both!"
